Garlic Pork Roast and Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

1 3 1/2-pound pork boneless loin roast
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups 1-inch pieces peeled sweet potatoes
1 medium onion sliced
6 cloves garlic peeled

Preparation

1
Remove fat from pork. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Cook pork in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides.
2
Place sweet potatoes, onion and garlic in 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. Place pork on vegetables. Pour broth over pork.
3
Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until pork and vegetables are tender.
5
SUBSTITUTION: If you like, you can substitute apple juice for the chicken broth.
6
SUCCESS HINT: We prefer the flavor of darker orange sweet potatoes, but you can use whatever variety you prefer. After browning the roast, use a small amount of chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Heat the broth in the skillet, and stir to loosen the browned bits of food on the bottom.
